Hayling Island’s FW3/22 Pillboxes

FW3/22 @ SZ738992 Mengham Salterns

FW3/22 @ SZ738992 Mengham Salterns

There are at least half a dozen of the common type 22 pillboxes that can be found dotted around the island, some are accesible others are not, the majority can be found by walking along the south west coast close to Hayling Island golf course.

With the exception of the pillboxes on the north part of the island all of these are finished in pebble as an aid of camouflage, construction differences can be found with fewer loopholes on some, internally all have a brick central Y blast wall.

Two type 22 pillboxes cover Ferry Rd, one is close to the road while the other sits within the Golf course, the grey concrete shuttered type 22 at Mengham Salterns has an attached L shaped half height blast wall.haylingislandtype22a

Defence Structures and sites of all types both above and below ground can be very dangerous. Serious injury or even death can arise from unauthorised entry into such sites and structures. Join a responsible club, group or society who can arrange official visits. The Pillbox Study Group accepts no responsibility for any damages or injuries caused by ignoring this advice. The PSG does not encourage members to undertake the ad hoc clearance of vegetation from pillboxes, as it can expose them to physical damage and inappropriate use, it may also contravene a variety of statutory regulations including, listed buildings and SSSI designations. Vegetation clearance should only ever be undertaken as part of a formal arrangement, having sought and obtained permission from the land owner and other necessary authorities. Damaging a listed or scheduled monument can be considered as a Heritage Crime.
